Food poisoning & need to vomit food in lower stomach?



Recommended Posts

Has anyone had food poisoning since their lapband? If the food has moved past the band, and you are well restricted, how do you vomit?

Once since being banded in September, I have vomitted from my lower stomach. It was an unpleasant experience, but it can/does happen.

It is possible but dangerous! The pressure is incredible and it made me feel like my head and eyeballs would explode!

I beleive it is recommended to have the fill removed in this case.

I was sick from the anesthesia after my banding... I heaved for hours and my surgeon ddidn't seem to think it would be a problem in regards to my band staying place... and it did... stay in place that is. :confused: Not an experience I would ever care to relive!

Hi Scott!

I was in another country about two months ago, and got a severe case of food poisoning. (Probably won't be able to imagine ever eating Thai food again).

I was up all night, vomiting. It felt terrible. I was just careful to try to sloooowly let it out, and to consciously try to minimize the resultant convulsing which resulted from the dry heaves, once my lower and upper stomach was empty.

It was not a pleasant experience, and it left me feeling ill for about ten hours. However, I have to say it was no better or worse than pre-banding.

I did worry a terrible lot, but no damage. Certainly best avoided.

Cheers, Brad

I had the flu and was throwing up for a couple hours before I could get to the ER and get some anti-nasua meds. It felt like I was going to throw up my band it hurt so badly. I now keep some anti- naseau suppositories ( I know...gross!) with me almost all the time just in case. I was worried about slippage but my surgeon said that the band is really made to withstand vomiting and I was ok. I had a fill scheduled a week or so after and everything was just fine!

It hurts like h - e double toothpicks though.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
